2021 NSMQ finale
The Amanfoo Boys on November 26, came face to face with six-time champions, Presec-Legon and Keta SHTS at the grand finale of this year’s NSMQ contest.
The race, right from the beginning of the first round saw a keen and stiff competition by all the three schools as they locked horns and went neck to neck for the first position.
Although Prempeh College won, it was a super tough five rounds for all three schools.
The True or False round had the ‘Dzolalians’ substituting Francisca Lamini with James Lutterodt. Presec equally made a substitution for Joel Aboagye to take over from Henry Otumfuo.
Although they did not make any substitution, Prempeh had almost all their answers right in the fourth round.
Prempeh College’s Evans Oppong ‘magically’ kept his cool to conveniently respond to the questions correctly.
The highly-anticipated race was finally decided in the last round where the boys from the ‘University of Sofoline’ proved their mettle to defeat the Presecans.
The ‘host and win agenda’ finally became a reality when the ‘Seniors’ floored the Odadie boys with outstanding brilliance.
At the end of the contest, Prempeh College amassed 53 points while Presec-Legon accumulated 49 points with Ketasco managing 30 points.
